GasBuddy said Tuesday it launched a Gasoline Availability Tracker to allow drivers in Southern states to search for fuel stations near them that have gas.

Several stations had spotty outages while crews worked to repair a damaged Colonial Pipeline line after a leak was discovered. Six states saw a reduction in fuel supplies and price spikes but there were widespread instances of stations not having fuel.

Colonial Pipeline said on Tuesday that the pipeline had been repaired and they hoped to begin restoring fuel service on Wednesday. The company expects it to take several days before the fuel delivery supply chain returns to normal.

The company says the Gasoline Availability Tracker “assists consumers and provides visibility to authorities, distributors and retailers with the most up-to-date, real-time information on fuel availability at specific retail locations.”

The tool was last used in 2012 to assist motorists in NY, NJ and CT in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
